On the Edge

Even with a high of 64, walking along Wrightsville Beach was a much-needed taste of summer after struggling through my first full Minnesota winter in five years. Nice to be back on the livable side of freezing. Although most were wearing pants and long sleeves, there were plenty of other people and dogs out enjoying the surf and sand as well.

One of dozens of residential developments near Raleigh-Durham airport in North Carolina.

And I admit, I didn’t store my portable electronics during landing. I’m sorry to everyone else for jeopardizing the safety of our flight. (Is that really still a threat? Have there been any commercial airplane disasters traced back to iPods?)
